“White goods based functional services” is one of seven selected projects from Linköping University. The news is published here.
“One of the selected research projects is “White goods-based functional services for housing companies”, which Erik Sundin, assistant professor at the Department of Economic and Industrial Development at Linköping University, is behind.
– It involves white goods manufacturers selling their products through services. Instead of buying a product, such as a refrigerator, you rent it for a certain period of time. Then you can replace it when your needs change. It becomes resource efficient,” says Erik Sundin.
He is pleased that the research project is being recognised.
– Being on the list is a confirmation that what we are doing is good in terms of sustainability and that there are companies that see a business benefit in the near future by participating in the research project, says Erik Sundin.”
